Over the last 12 months, the nature of professional and amateur sports has changed in a way few could foresee. When the COVID-19 pandemic began, America’s economy was robust, unemployment was below 4% and the NCAA’s budget was huge.
Now, the sports world (like all others) has changed radically, and the ripple effect is immense. Frank N. Darras has been an important part of the change occurring, helping professional and college athletes protect their financial futures, and helping to define what that change looks like.
Mr. Darras has spoken to various news outlets and written several articles on how those changes are impacting the future of sports. From the historic Name/Image/Likeness change that the NCAA adopted recently to players being more acutely aware of the need for long-term permanent and total disability insurance to due the pandemic, Mr. Darras has been a highly-sought-after legal voice.
Below are some of the articles, interviews and media hits that have highlighted Mr. Darras’ knowledge in this area, his work on behalf of athletes and his ongoing efforts on behalf of his sports-related clients.
